my madden guess.
If they tried to have the linebacker press him, couldn't they just spread him a few yards further out from the tackle to open up running lanes? Also, if you try to cover him with a safety (tighter towards the middle) doesn't that open up the deep corner, over top of the safety (just have the tight end stay on the line of scrimmage to hold the corner).
